hurt my lower back 2 years ago doing boot camp, have had a reoccurance for last 4 months , didnt do anything to start it off , worst is at night as pain if i turn in bed is off the scale , dont want to keep taking pain killers, physio hasnt helped , am now at a loss what to do , has knocked my confidence running wise and mo jo whats that? used to use running as me time but cant now run a mile without having to walk so now find excuses not to go out.
don,t run through pain, if its a tight piriformis and glutes u need to do stretches and cross train till physio says its ok to run again, swimming and cycling are the best, and build it up again. foam rolling is good for piriformis but i still havent got the hang of it properley, the yoga pose the pigeon is also best stretch ever, look it up and give it a go.
advice please, have come back to running after a year of injury to find i am struggling to run, have a niggle that really hurts at top of leg where it joins groin, its like it twangs when i run after 2 or 3 miles it seems to settle but still hurts, could it be a tear ? and how can i get rid so i can run without pain, incidentally it also does it day to day when i am at work and home, causes me to hobble some days.
hi still on the end of nasty bout on my hip, havent run properly since last year, have had steroid injection this week and fingers crossed seems to have helped, managed 4 mile bike ride and run/walk couple of miles. going to try the empsom salts.
